The Army offers monetary bonuses for prior service personnel, who have been separated from the military for 91 days or more, and are qualified in an Army "shortage" MOS (job).

This program includes prior Army Service and members separated from the other branches of the Armed Forces. Members selected from active duty from other branches of the Armed Forces must have military skills which convert directly to Army MOSs (without having to go through Army job training).

The amount of bonus depends on the "Multiplier" assigned to the MOS, the individual's rank, the member's time in service, and the number of years the individual re-enlists for. In some cases, the bonus multiplier also depends on where the individual is stationed.

The Bonus "Zone" is simply the amount of time the person has been in the military:

Zone A -- Soldiers who re-enlist with between 17 months and 6 years of service.

Zone B -- Soldiers, who -- at the time of re-enlistment -- have between 6 years and 10 years of service.

Zone C -- Soldiers who re-enlist with between 10 and 14 years of service.

The formula to compute the bonus amount is:

(BONUS MULTIPLIER) X (MONTHLY BASE PAY) X (NUMBER OF YEARS RE-ENLISTING FOR)

Below are the Bonus Multipliers established by the Army for the Army Prior Service Re-enlistment Bonus Program for MOS's which have a maximum bonus cap of $30.000.

Bonuses are paid in Lump Sum, at the time of re-enlistment. This list is current as of February 8, 2005..



Bonuses are subject to change. For the very latest in enlistment bonuses, check the Army MILPER Messages.
